Why don’t we use BI to analyse security and storage data?June 30, 2010 No Comments
Maybe it sounds too “meta,” but we should be able to use technology to solve technology problems.
This is my rationale: we know that users tend to ignore a lot of IT security policies because there is a scarcity of data available about the vulnerabilities, the history of attacks of data loss in a given firm and what has worked in the past. Job one, in other words, is for IT departments to not simply spend more money on intrusion-detection mechanisms (although they need to do that), but start doing a self-evaluation of their IT security posture. Only once they can confidently assess the number of incidents they have endured, the business impacts it has had and the most challenging areas of vulnerability will they be able to move to a more proactive approach.DATA and ANALYTICS
